Corona: Chauvet fixtures chosen for virtual Jo Quail concert
David Howard was called upon to light a virtual concert by London-based cellist and composer Jo Quail. “Using looping and layering techniques, Jo’s music has a structure that encourages lighting elements to reflect and visualize the sounds Jo produces with her cello. The visual experience builds with the music”, says Howard.
Featuring six individual compositions taken from Quail’s discography, the concert took place in an improvised demo space, since the production team did not have access to a livestream studio. Helping Howard create a variety of looks within this space was an extensive collection of Chauvet Professional fixtures, including the Maverick MK Pyxis, MK2 Wash, MK3 Wash, Rogue R1 FX-B, Épix Strip Tour, and Ovation E-910FC color rendering ellipsoidal.
“From a logistical point of view, we only had a few hours to set up and film all six pieces, each of them about 10 minutes each in length”, says Howard. “The entire show was programmed from scratch with a good deal of the show programmed in advance using WYSIWYG. Each piece was a single take and operated live so there really was no room for mistakes. Since Jo’s music is very layered, all the accent lighting that picks up on this music language was structured in the desk in such a way it could be brought seamlessly in and out as she played.”
